    I have been working at Quality Distribution full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible time-off with hourly employee's, but you have to make up the time in the same week, not just the same pay period. The company is in the process of moving to Channel Side - Downtown Tampa in October 2017.

    Cons

    The corporate environment is small considering the vast amount of satellite locations and drivers on the road. Which in turn leaves little room for advancement in the corporate hierarchy. Most departments are rather small unless it's Sales or Marketing. All departments that are not directly making the company profit are underfunded and short staffed. I see employees in all departments working 12hr days and weekends a lot.

    Advice to Management

    More oversight and auditing in all departments.

    I have been working at Quality Distribution full-time

    Pros

    Company is experiencing rapid growth.

    Cons

    Growth is outpacing available manpower and resources

    Advice to Management

    Need to ensure the appropriate resources (specifically manpower) are in place to keep up with the company's growth.

    Pros

    Learned more at this job than any other - and that's with 15+ years of experience in the industry. Great corporate support team, coworkers & drivers

    Cons

    Planning was often times rushed without consideration for the affects it had on all of the teams / depts. Also, opportunities for growth were minimal.

    Advice to Management

    My management team was awesome. I would suggest allowing more vetting of processes and changes with the subject matter experts and the affected employees. I would also recommend better utilization of current employee resources for promotions.

    I have been working at Quality Distribution full-time

    Pros

    Typical corporate America environment. Not a bad company, but not the most exciting either. VPs and upper management seem to be the most clueless (save for a few), while the lower tiered employees do all the grunt work, striving for their piece of cheese.

    Cons

    Questionable management appointments. One manager had a habit of forwarding job postings to others in the company- unfortunately the jobs weren't even for the company. Very subtle :-) Another senior manager liked to discuss other employees behind their backs to their staff and trash them - Go Team!! :-) Another manager even accused one of their employees of making an ethics hotline complaint and then blackballed the employee and forced them out! (Corporate ethics anyone?)

    Advice to Management

    Personality test prospective management appointments (especially upper level).

    Pros

    Working at Quality Distribution in a business professional capacity can at times be rewarding. The complexity of the business being done leads to a great amount of personal growth for people early in their careers.

    Cons

    There are two things that you need to look out for if you are considering a job with Quality Distribution. The first thing is benefits. On the surface it appears as if they offer a competitive benefits package. However the truth is learned if you dig a little deeper. The 401k matching is a whopping 6 cents on the dollar up to 6 percent of your pay. The "profit sharing" plan is laughable as the earnings targets are simply unattainable. The tuition reimbursement plan is pretty much a contract for indentured servitude. And finally the health insurance is way too expensive for what you actually get. The second thing is, the actual state of the company! Employee morale is very low and the company just doesn't seem to be performing very well.

    Advice to Management

    When telling employees about the state of the company, choose your words wisely. Don't tell people that the company is doing fine and then a few weeks later lay 60 people off. It really does send the wrong message.
